England vs Germany

England have the opportunity to open up a favourable route to the Euro 2020 final should they complete the simple challenge of defeating Germany in the last 16.

England progressed to the knockout rounds having not lost a game all tournament. Winning against both Croatia and the Czech Republic and drawing with Scotland.

Germany meanwhile avoided a scare against Hungary in the final game to draw 2-2 and finish 2nd in the group.

An opening day loss to France set the nerves on edge from day 1 but a 4-2 win over Portugal gave the competition a glimpse of what Joachim Low’s side are capable of.

Joshua Kimmich has already set the rivalry in motion with comments about the difficulty of facing England.

“We are optimistic because we already showed a good performance against Portugal,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to it to be honest. There are worse matches to play than at Wembley against England. I think we can make it and be successful.”

Will the Bayern man end up looking rather silly or have his estimations bang on?

Germany could be however with some key members of the squad.

Coach Joachim Low has confirmed that wing-back Robin Gosens has been suffering with illness.

“We have to wait and see. Sometimes these things get better overnight,” said Low.

Not only that but Ilkay Gundogan is also a doubt for the game.

Low said he has a “head contusion” and felt “dizzy” but that he did train.

Low would have a problem considering both have been key starters for the side. Leon Goretzka will likely partner Toni Kroos. Meanwhile at left-wing back, a more attacking option such as Leroy Sane could come in.

Marcel Halstenberg is another left-back option back much more reserved than Gosens. All will be revealed later tonight.
